Haiti - FLASH : Insecurity and Covid, the USA put Haiti on the list of countries to avoid
The US administration has again issued a maximum level 4 traveler alert for Haiti. The Travel-State Department urges nationals to avoid travel to Haiti due to COVID-19, crime, civil unrest, and kidnapping."

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued a level 3 travel health alert for Haiti due to Covid-19 and recommend that American nationals reconsider their trips to Haiti emphasizing. "[...]Travelers to Haiti may experience border closures, airport closures, travel prohibitions, stay at home orders, business closures, and other emergency conditions within Haiti due to COVID-19. Visit the Embassy's COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Haiti."

Country summary security :

"Violent crime, such as armed robbery and carjacking, is common. Kidnapping is widespread. Kidnappers may use sophisticated planning or take advantage of unplanned opportunities. Victims have included U.S. citizens.

Demonstrations, tire burning, and roadblocks are frequent, unpredictable, and can turn violent. Local police may lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents. Emergency response, including ambulance service, is limited or non-existent.

Travelers are sometimes followed and violently attacked and robbed shortly after leaving the Port-au-Prince international airport. Robbers and carjackers have attacked private vehicles stuck in heavy traffic congestion and often target lone drivers, particularly women driving alone.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in some areas of Haiti."
